Five-Star Restaurant in Downtown Cincinnati Closes

Filed under: Business Moves — Tom @ 7:11 pm

America’s longest-running five-star restaurant (41 consecutive years) closed today, and may or may not reopen. Cincinnati News has the news.

I am stunned that the owners are going to allow a full year of closure to take place before reopening, and that the prospect of reopening where they would like is still dependent on resolving zoning issues. I would have expected better planning.

I am also surprised at the Post article’s characterization of the location (one block from Fountain Square, considered the center of downtown) as “inner city.” But then again, anyone who has stood on 6th Street between Vine and Walnut after dark would probably agree that doing so has an “inner city” feel that is none too pleasant.
